(1) a blessing, benediction, invocation of good, as of a father about to die, Genesis 27:12, seq.; 33:11. בִּרְכַּת יְשָׁרִים “the benediction of righteous men,” Proverbs 11:11 בִּרְכַּת יְהֹוָה “benediction (i.e. favour) of God,” the result of which is prosperity and good of every kind, Genesis 39:5 Ps. 3:9 Isaiah 44:3. Also בְּרָכָה simply, Isaiah 19:24; Joel 2:14, sometimes followed by a gen. of him whom God had blessed. Genesis 28:4, אַבְרָהָם בִּרְכַּת “the benediction (with which he blessed) Abraham;” Genesis 49:26, בִּרְכוֹת הוֹרַי עַד “the benedictions (of God with which he blessed) the eternal mountains.” Differently, Proverbs 24:25, בִּרְכַּת טוֹב “blessing of good.” Plur. בְּרָכוֹת benedictions, blessings, sc. of God, Proverbs 10:6, 28:20 but more often, benefits, gifts divinely bestowed; Psal. 84:7 Genesis 49:25. Compare Isaiah 65:8, “destroy it (the cluster) not, כִּי בְרָכָה בּוֹ for there is a divine gift in it.”
